EP 13 - The transformative power of storytelling

"Educating girls is not about women vs men, it’s about our future vs our past."

Sophie and Ravinol discuss his journey from Krishna monk to entrepreneurship, building a B corp business, and using the power of storytelling to drive change.

His latest documentary " A road to Vrindavran" re-examines traditional gender roles.

Just as he is understanding the barriers girls face, he is hit with a challenge that sends him on a new line of discovery.

Will education bring them true equality or simply transform them into caged butterflies? How do you ensure lasting change?

A fascinating movie and conversation.
